Portraits are embroidered free-hand with a sewing machine. I like to think of the needle as my pen and the thread is the ink. To add a unique pop of color, flowers (or anything, depending on the portrait) are added by needle felting. Then another layer of embroidery is added on top of that.
I enjoy making a variety of portraits that capture my mood as well as custom portraits for clients. I have made custom portraits based on photographs and ideas.
